High School Contemporary Issues Colloquium
8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Various Classrooms

We were prompted to organize this event by the expressed desire of the high school students to understand the current issues of our world and ask what their next step might be to make a difference. For the full day, presenters will share their areas of expertise with the students. These experts from the field share their knowledge and unique perspectives to offer glimpses of what a young person can do to “take the next step.” The day will run on the "Free University" model: the High School will divide up (not by grades or age) by student interest. The students will participate in multiple workshops and a final closing session where the whole high school will come together in the auditorium to discuss their impressions of themes/topics from the day and develop a school-wide conversation on the act of participating in change.

As an inaugurating event to solidify the new school year, the HS camping trip traditionally involves all High School students in a shared “character-building and settling-in” experience. Over these two days, the older grades and High School faculty welcome the new freshman class into the High School community with daytime workshops, outdoor class activities, communal meals, and the shared experience of camping in a retreat in the woods together (all possibly enlivened by one or two pranks as well!)
